It is important for you to understand how Missouri courts will delegate awards. Our state follows a pure comparative fault rule, which allocates damage awards based on the percentage of fault. First, the total amount of damages is assessed, and then it is determined how much each party is to blame for the accident. For example, if one driver is found to be 75% at fault for an accident, while the victim is responsible for the other 25%, then 75% of the total damages will be awarded to the victim. It is important to note that there is no empirical method of determining fault, so this largely depends on your ability to argue your case in court. In such instances, Daniel J. Grimm is in your corner, and will fight for the most favorable outcome possible.
